With dozens of active volcanoes and stunning snow-peaked mountains, Kamchatka is called the land of fire and ice. The 750-mile peninsula also has a unique population of salmon and bears, and hot sulfurous geysers. Its remote location at the eastern edge of Russia has kept the area pristine, and tourists say there's no other place like it.
